It seems that references to pirated versions of GTA from the creators of GTA are still not in the game.
On October 31, a fan twitter account dedicated to the Red Dead Redemption 2 game began sending information about Easter eggs in the official localization to Russian-speaking players. According to the authors of the profile, if you lose a large amount of poker or dice, then instead of the “international” lettering “Fail” you will see “Spent”.
Messages about Easter eggs were received by users who wrote about RDR 2 on Twitter. According to the fan community, the phrase “was found and verified” by a certain Dmitry Gromov.
Rockstar added outstanding easter egg for Russian players (causes when you fail too much money in Poker or Liars Dice). In English version and other international ones it’s only titled as simple “FAIL”, but Russian one has extra line. #RDR2 #RedDeadRedemption2 pic.twitter.com/YZ9ZTRANeM

“Spent” – a phrase-meme from the game GTA: San Andreas. She appeared at the death of the hero in a pirated version with a machine translation from English – in the original was the word “Wasted”. Other “clumsy” phrases from the game have also become memes: for example: “Cool fucking, carbon fiber” (“She’s with me, cabron. So chill the fuck out”).
Both GTA and Red Dead Redemption 2 were made by one studio, Rockstar, so some users believed the fan community. However, other gamers have tried to lose a large amount of money in poker and noted that “Easter eggs” does not appear. A check showed that if you lost all-in (about six dollars at a four-cent rate), no inscription appeared in the game at all.
Однако же у нас не получилось это воспроизвести в игре. Если у вас вдруг это случится, то вы расскажите, будьте любезны https://t.co/L166xJXxEb

Фигня, я проигрывал в покер, такого не было. Что значит проиграть too much?
